While not having been the quickest car, it was Stadler Motorsport’s Porsche 997 GT3 R that proved to be the toughest, as the Swiss squad claimed victory in an attrition-filled Dunlop 24 Hours of Dubai.

Rolf Ineichen took the 997-based Porsche across the line to claim the German manufacturer’s first overall victory in the around-the-clock desert in four years, sharing the winning machine with Mark Ineichen, Marcel Matter, Adrian Amstutz and Porsche Supercup ace Christian Engelhart.
